Israeli Colonizers Bulldoze Palestinian Lands Near Nablus

On Tuesday, illegal Israeli colonizers bulldozed private Palestinian lands owned by the residents of Jaloud village, south of Nablus, in the northern part of the occupied West Bank.

Ghassan Daghlas, a Palestinian official who monitors Israel’s illegal colonialist activities in the northern West Bank, said the colonizers came from the illegal Ahiya outpost built on stolen Palestinian lands.

The colonizers are trying to expand their two illegal outposts by annexing and isolating more Palestinian lands.

All of Israel’s colonies in the occupied West Bank, including those in and around occupied East Jerusalem, are illegal under International Law, the Fourth Geneva Convention in addition to various United Nations and Security Council resolutions. They also constitute war crimes under International Law.

Article 49 of the Fourth Geneva Convention states: “The Occupying Power shall not deport or transfer parts of its own civilian population into the territory it occupies.” It also prohibits the “individual or mass forcible transfers, as well as deportations of protected persons from occupied territory”.
